Click on Approve Payable Time to
go into HRS to approve
employee’s submitted work time.
Employees have entered time.
What happens next?
 Your employees have entered their time worked.
 As a supervisor, you will need to approve their
submitted time so it can be processed for payroll.
 When approving time, there are two
circumstances that can occur related to the
approval: exceptions or no exceptions.
Finding Your Employees in HRS
• If you supervise more than one
employee, you can look up the
employees using the Group ID. You
can also look up an employee
individually by Employee ID
(Empl ID).
• As a HRS security measure, when
searching for employees, you will
only have access to the employees
you supervise.
• After entering the Group ID or
Employee ID, click on "Get
Employees" button.
TIP: Verify the dates are set for the
correct pay period.
Exceptions in HRS Time Approval
When approving time in HRS, there are two circumstances
that can occur related to the approval:
No Exceptions:
• Via a nightly process, HRS searches
through employees timesheet and
checks for time entries that need
special review. No exceptions
means no problems were found.
Exceptions:
• Via a nightly process, HRS searches
through employees timesheet and
checks for unusual events or
entries. Exceptions mean some
entries were discovered that need
to be reviewed and resolved
before payroll is processed.
Approving Time: No Exceptions
 After you approve an
employee’s time, the
process called Time
Administration will run.
 Time Administration goes
through the employee’s
timesheet entries and
checks for unusual entries
called exceptions.
 If no exceptions are found,
after the time is approved,
it will go to payroll for
processing.

necessary.
When an Exception Occurs (cont.)
• Clicking the stopwatch
allows you to view the
severity level of the
exception.
• Low or Medium severity
level will still create payable
time, if Allow is checked.
• When Time Administration
runs that evening, the
adjusted time will be reevaluated and the exception
will be cleared.
• High severity: make
corrections in the Timesheet
and wait for Time Admin to
process overnight. The
correction of the time data
will clear the exception and
you will be able to approve
the time.
